The Split Coffee Table Creates Surfaces and Crevices for Chronicles

In its essence, a table is a fairly unimaginative object. A flat elevated plane may have many uses, but something like the Split Coffee Table has the potential for more. The eccentric item invites its owner to adapt to a new system of organization, providing him with several storage slits and four separate broken tops that emerge from the monolithic base.

The surfaces can become home to different collections of books, magazines, beverages and miscellaneous possessions, while the smooth cracks across the center supply perfect nooks and crannies for newspapers, TV remotes and coasters. The Split Coffee Table fosters a sort of haphazard but tidy system of arranging one's things, celebrated through the formal abstractness of Julien Vidame's contemporary white and neon-accented piece.
